't president obama's approach. >> what i've learned from the results of this election is if i was somebody trying to get mitt romney elected tell the biography, this is one of the best biographies and resume's to return for president, i would have spent time even if it goes over a guy like mine's head, tell us about the companies and things you've done for people. and in the 30's, people were wondering you, how are you going to support four kids, and you found time to be a bishop in a church. and yes, the word mormon may have come up. >> and they broke the rule, you define yourself positively first, they allowed the obama people to define them for months, why they didn't put on the bio spot for me one of the greatest questions in politics. >> because the buyo spot. >> do you agree? >> absolutely right. and he has a great resume', but that's not what was going to win the election. what was going to win the election is fix the problems. how? remember, it was 39 points and then 5 points. and honestly, i followed this up closely and still don't know what his plan was. that his resume' was fant
ago, december of 2010 after the election, i and a bunch of other governors in both parties went to the white house, and the executive office building with the secretary and others and talked about flexibility then. the reality is the flexibility was limited mainly not to things like how many staff and the state do you have? do you have a handful like utah or hundreds like massachusetts, in terms of regulation of what has to be included and how it's governed in your state, those things are essentially dictated through the federal government, and for all the talk about flexibility, it really doesn't happen. i've got to tell you though as a governor who believes in federalism and believes in the 10th amendment instincts tiffly, my gut to have the state run it rather than the federal government. you'll get things like the food stamp program and special education anthes a mandate that for years has been mandated by the federal government and the school districts in their country and never comes close to covering the cost of that. i think that most of us who said no and deferred to th
wins this fight. sadly the real reason we've reached this point is because our elected representatives simply have no idea how to stop spending your money. as a result, the door has been kicked wide open for democrats to use this as an opportunity to scare you into thinking more government, well, that's got to be the answer. we've heard all of this before. now during both the obamacare and the stimulus debates, fear mongering was this president's go-to strategy into getting his way. this is what he predicted would happen unless his so-called recovery plan was passed. >> the situation we face could not be more serious. we've inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the great depression. economists across the spectrum have warned if they don't act immediately million more jobs will disappear, the national unemployment rate will approach double digits, more people will lose their homes and their healthcare, and our nation will sink into a crisis that at some point is going to be that much tougher to reverse. >> sean: a lot of good that did. what's stopping obama from imp
elected officials don't know how to stop spending money. let me first play a small part of one of the most memorable inaugural addresses of all time. >> my fellow americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> sean: sadly five decades removed from that iconic speech, the democratic party, its leaders, and countless other americans, rely on government for too many things. instead of asking what they can do for their country, they're asking what their country can do for them. now the debt record is at record levels, tax rates are soaring, because nowadays handouts have taken the place of hard work. a liberal notion has permeated our society one that now says the federal government, it's their job to find you a job. it's the so-called rich that should have to pay more in order to bankroll somebody's healthcare, or buy somebody's birth control regardless of their religious beliefs. simply calling this an entitlement society is a gross understatement. in the next 35 days, republicans and democrats will likely come together, announce a temporary dea
. thank you. >> bret: he is not campaigning for re-election, but president obama is back on the political stump to round up support for his economic plan to get off the fiscal cliff. chief washington correspondent james rosen tells us that has the congressional republicans feeling left out. >> ultimately, the leader is the president of the united states. >> this president in leading the white house and senate democrats in negotiations with the house republicans over how the avoid the so-called fiscal cliff decided for now to forgo further talks with the top lawmakers. task now delegated to the treasury secretary geithner it go and others. instead, president obama is utahing this critical week to meet with the ceos from small and big business and middle class taxpayers before boarding air force one on friday for campaign style rally in the philadelphia area. >> rather than sitting down with lawmakers of both parties an working out an agreement, he is back on the campaign trail. we are not going to this problem creating villains and drumming up outrage. >> he will be out trying to i'm sure
am confused. i remember hearing that democratic nations are peaceful, hamas democratically elected in 2006, morsi government was just elected and they become more anti-american, more dangerous to israel, more anti-western. what went wrong with our understanding of democracy here? >> i think it was much too limited. democracy is a culture. it's a way of life. it's not just simply holding an election and counting votes. it takes a long time to get it in place. it's no knock on any particular region or religion to say that. people have recognized it as far back as jon stewart, in europe they didn't cover themselves in glory in the last century. in russia having passed out of authoritarianism may be going back into it. so the fact that a group can gel elected in the and they believe the first 9/11 was an inside job can elect the president of egypt is no surprise. what it shows the general deterioration of the security situation for the united states, for israel and other friends in the region that has certain under the obama administration. >> so we should stop promoting democracy as a
or -- >> absolutely not. they're stonewalling at every turn. they ran out the clock before the election. the president says now that the election is over, we'll cooperate. the most basic information about what happened on the night of the attack, and what survivors had to say after the attack is not being provided, and we'll talk more about that tomorrow. but long story short is i know very little from this administration about what happened in benghazi. what i'm finding out on my money makes me very upset. >> greta: is ambassador rice trying to test the waters if she's nominated? >> i have no idea, but i'll be glad to talk to her. again, it's not just about her. why did the president seven days after she spoke write this off as a video-inspired event when it's pretty clear to everybody early on this is a terrorist attack, in a coordinated way. there was no mob that turned into a riot. the riot that i've seen doesn't include heavy weapons and mortar trucks. >> greta: do i take it you're going to ask her direct questions? >> i'm going to ask her straight, direct questions because it's my job. president
on election night and thanking his family and his supporters. according to the pew research center he could have also thanked the media for his win. the people of pew found media coverage of president obama was more positive at 29% during the last week of campaigning before election day. coverage of mitt romney on the other hand, mostly negative, 33% that same week. so, should this be a big thank you to the media for his reelection? >> no, i mean, i think he would have lost the election because of their get out the vote things as well. >> you're talking about romney. >> that's right, but if you look at the media's coverage and the pew people have said that they thought it was that reporters were paying attention to the polls. well, you know what? reporters unless they're reporting on a poll should not be paying attention to polls he when they write their story and be aware of any unconscious bias. >> jon: somehow, i suspect, jim, you're not surprised by the numbers from pew. >> no i'm not and i've cited before evan thomas saying it could be 15 points in an election and amended that to say 5
is going on? >>guest: republicans lost the election. it was about tax policy. most republicans want to get a deal they have to give something up. they will want something in run so if they bend on taxes they will want an entitlement reform, so, that is the rub, but, republicans do not want to raise the rates with you they want to eliminate the tax loopholes and bay down the debt. that would break grover's pledge. >>neil: i have the pledge, something that a lot of the guys signed on to, quite a few but what stands out is the second part of the pledge, you oppose any elimination of deductions and credits unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates. it is the tax rate stuff that will not help. what do we make of either this moment of reality, this post election come to whoever moment or what? >>guest: the democrats have been frustrated with the g.o.p.'s sticking to the pledge and now, president obama won a second term, it is very important that any deal they sign off on would break part of the pledge. i don't think the democrats will sign off on anything that doesn't at lea
approach on the fiscal cliff, saying the elect is over. it's time to stop campaigning and start talk. some republicans are telling the president, show us your hand. martha: not over the cliff yet but perhaps headed there. good morning. i'm martha maccallum. the minority leader mitch mcconnell called the president out for what he says is a campaign-style blitz instead of negotiations between both sides. >> rather than sitting down with lawmakers and working out an agreement he's back on the campaign trail. we are not going to solve this problem by creating villians and drumming up outrage. >> he will be out trying to i'm sure zero in on those states represented by members of the house and the senate to try to get public support. bill: democrats upping the ante, looking to raise taxes, protect entitlements and raise the debt ceiling all at the same time. stuart varney, hello, there, sir. you think there has been a shift in those negotiations. >> i don't mean a shift in position. i mean a shift in focus, what they are focusing in on on the last couple days it's been taxes now it seems to be w
from the poor election day showing among hispanics are planning beyond immigration and visas for scientists and technology students and those with green cards to bring their immediate families to the u.s. >> one scrutiny in operations fast and furious, to the controversy over the surprise departure of a cia director. chief intelligence yont catherine herridge has that story for us, good evening. >> good evening, the regular republican on the senate judiciary committee, senator grassley, wants them to know who signed off on the fbi investigation and mon storing david petraeus's personal e-mail and what is the relationship with his biographer came to light after a fbi background check. and the department official under president bush said that they seemed to be investigating the benghazi controversy with the same particular approach he used in the fast and furious gun running scandal. >> senator grassley's questions covered a very broad scope from the beginning of investigation throughout it up until its conclusion and it seems to me they want to get to the who, what, when and
the military offensive in gaz a. this is weeks before the general election. he wants to focus on his personal life. there is more to this story i think. angry workers and a fire in bangladesh. many workers were trapped in the building because of no emergency exits. some of the clothes were made for walmart and sears and clothing line of sean puppy combs. shellie moore catit po will announce her cand date for u.s. senate. she is a pro choice republican and she is a test of the gop's ability to expand the appeal to voters, the congresswoman will run for democrat jay rockefeller's seat. the senator is not saying if he will run again in 2014. it is an exciting day today. shoppers will be pounding the keyboards and not the pavement looking for on line bargains. this year's cyber monday will be a big success with americans expected to spend 1. 5 billion bucks up 20 percent from last year. i saw the deals last night. buy one and 60 percent off on the other. it is enticing. >> brian: deals are for real. and today's on line . happy to see the retailers busy over the weekend. talking about the fiscal c
is that republicans seem to be running around with the tail between their leg after the election and acquiescing on revenues and letting the democrats stream roll them and he says they will pay in two years. do you feel threatened? >>guest: will, republicans have to be for some things and we need to be for things and for spending cuts. we need to be for entitlement reform. that has to be done if we are ever going to be serious about this debt issue, i don't think we should disrespect grover norquist any more than i believe we should disrespect the heritage foundation or any others. i respect them. we just don't always agree. >>neil: what he is saying, senator, he says that there is much more propensity to come up with creative ways to raise revenue than to cut spending. and that it is disproportionately so and republicans are going along with this like idiots. >> well, the negotiations have not seriously begun and people have staked out various positions so we with have to look at the products of the negotiations. >>neil: will we avoid a calamity? >> i'm not sure. i don't think we will because i
,000, a plan which republicans so far reject. the president said the re-election shows a majority of americans support his approach. >> not just democrats but also a lot of republicans and a lot of independents agreed we should have a balanced approach to deficit reduction that doesn't hurt the economy or hurt middle class families. glad to see if you have been reading the pains more and more republicans in congress are agreeing with this idea we should have a balanced approach. >>shepard: he referenced some in the g.o.p. who signal they could be willing to play bull. the republican leadership still is insisting they will not consider tax hikes. >> republicans are willing to put revenue on the table the it is time for the president and democrats to get serious on the spending problem our country has. >>shepard: president obama continues the p.r. blitz. later today he is scheduled to meet with big business leaders to discuss the proposed fix to the fiscal cliff. ed henry is live with us at the white house. what seem it is to be lost in this is the tax cuts going to expire. that's it. if they wa

they elect the messiah we will all come together in worship of him. a lot of companies have said if you elect him, it is not that we have beef. we can't afford to pay for this. we can't afford to pay for his medicare. we will have to lay people off. they get these boycotts. not only do you have to vote for him, but if you don't vote for him, even after the election, if you go bankrupt you are a racist. >> all right, whatever. from guns to arrows. he went on for awhile there. i zoned out. i was thinking about chicken and tear -- teriaki. does your perfect fit have to love mitt? they are matching singles paced on parton ship. it allows social issues to foreign policy and then shop for significant others accordingly. says the 27-year-old founder, quote, while it is not a make or break issue at the beginning, it can evolve into one if you hide your political values into later on in the relationship. the status quo is to avoid politics on the first date, but politics will come up and politics defines a lot about our values. neither side is my type. i go for this. >> just imagine that on your back.

an election in january, so there's no real hope that there will be a longer-term agreement before that election, and after that it is anyone's guess as to what type of an agreement they will have here and will anybody be able to forge an agreement that will lead to a lasting peace? that is still a very big question going forward, rick. rick: conor powell live on the ground in jerusalem, thanks. heather: well, u.n. ambassador susan rice defending those early comments on the benghazi terror attacks just days after the raid on the u.s. consulate. ambassador rice went on five sunday talk shows and said that the attack grew out of a spontaneous to protest over an anti-muslim film. and now she says those remarks were based on the intelligence she was given. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. heather: national security correspondent jennifer griffin

. >> bill: allall right. now, when i pointed that out on election night that people were breaking for the president and a large part of the reason was entitlements, 'cause the below 30,000, 63% vote for barak obama, gave him 7 million in plurality and he won by 3 1/2 million popular votes. when i pointed that out. the "washington post" editorial board attacked me. my question to you as a psychiatrist now, the facts are on my side. i proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt using the facts. the exit polling, and all of the facts that we presented last night and tonight. why are they attacking me so vehemently? what is wrong with telling the american people what's going on? >> well, look, the fact is democrats did get their demographic, but that doesn't prove that they got the demographic because they're getting more stuff. i think traditionally democrats have been getting their demographic for a very long time. that skew in social class is to who gets the vote, democrat or republican, has been around for a long time. i think it's a plausible theory. i don't think it's a proven fac
down, not up. so, obama got himself re-elected less strongly than four years ago and the republican house got itself re-elected? >>eric: what happens if republicans do cave and do sign on to higher taxes, what will you do? >>guest: well, the question is what the american people do if they see the republicans and democrats agreeing to raise taxes to pay if oh bum's bigger government then the republicans would be co-owners of what will be, unfortunately, a very unpleasant four years as all of obamacare falls on top of the heads of the american people, all of the regulations they have been delaying until after the election me begin to kick in, this is a lot of unpleasantness all delayed deliberately until after the election that will not be pleasant between now and the next four years and i don't think anyone wants it sign up to pay for all of the higherding a. >>eric: the if youly -- newly elected congress people and senate, are they signing on to your pledge at the frequency to which the prior elected folks have, the 2010 class? >>guest: well, 2010 was the high water mark but we are
. take a look. >> we are hearing of a train wreck that could happen in weeks of the election, massive tax hikes and spending cuts that kick in. >> the blame squarely falls on the president and senator harry reid for never passing a budget in three years. >> we have had a situation where the president has had to do this on his own and you know and i know it. >>neil: he had a democratic house of representatives and a democratic senate and the world was his oyster. >> if he had a little help from the republicans, so many americans could be working. >>neil: are you kidding me? i know the republicans are evil, but, come on, in your opinion, did he do anything wrong? >> not the substance. >> the president has failed to put a solution on the table to avoid the defense cuts. >> but you signed on to the sequestration that means the defense cuts will come up. >> not everyone. we thought it was a stupid deal. >> congressman, you had a plan. sequestration. and now you don't like that. i can understand it. >> that is why i voted against it. >> i voted against it. >> now both parties are saying they vo

. a young woman said it's not the first election we worry about, it's the second. that's what we have to worry about, a repeat of the iranian experience. what should the united states of america do? saying this unacceptable. we thank mr. morsi for his efforts in brokering a cease-fire, which is fragile but this is not what the united states of america taxpayers expect and our dollars will be directly related to the progress towards democracy which you promised the people of egypt when your party and you were elected president. >> chris: let's talk about that because morsi took his steps ours after secretary of state hillary clinton praised him for helping to broker the peace deal between hamas and israel and the administration issued the state department a tepid criticism. how tough should they get? should they say you have to pull back? what should our demands and leverage be? >> our leverage is not only substantial bayance and aid, plus an imf deal but the marshaling world public opinion is also against this kind of move by mr. morsi. we appreciate president morsi's action but in th
. president, you better watch yourself because we won the election. let's focus on those taxes on the rich. let's deal with entitlement down the line. that scares me. that is unrealistic. it goes against what we heard the president of the united states say. >> dana: when it comes to the math, do the math, they have a good opportunity in front of them. >> we heard senator reid said when asked he couldn't name any of the cut the democrats are willing to offer in the fiscal cliff negotiations. he said, "we need to get credit for cuts previously made." this is today. the cut previously made. i'm scratching my head to figure out what cuts the democrats made prior that they want credit for. if they did make credit cuts why did we run up four more years in a row? start fresh right now. talk about cuts and then talk about how are we going to raise revenues. >> eric: what would -- >> dana: what would harry reid mean by that? get credit on cuts they made. on what? >> bob: that is a $60,000 question. i'm not sure what he is talking about. but i know there will be cuts if entitlement program. readjust
question. let's look at it this way, benjamin netanyahu is going to run for re-election in january. if he receives a solid majority, then he's going to be in a position to say to iran, if you continue i'm going to strike you some time say in march. just before he does that he's liable to ask, can we have american ships and maybe even american batteries ashore that can shoot down missiles? so we're talking about something about next march. >> that's what i'm understanding, that spring of 2013 will be an interesting time. we will keep our eyes on that time period as well as every step along the way. mr. bing west thank you very much for your analysis. >> thank you. jon: republican senators now pressing both the justice department and the f.b.i. for answers about their involvement in the investigation into general david petraeus affair with his biographer, the former cia chief resigned from his post two weeks ago as a result. catherine herridge live in washington with more of the details for us. >> thank you, good morning. in this two page letter the ranking republican on the senate judiciar

to seek an election to form a union. and that without seeking to do that, in essence, what the uscw's trying to do here, says walmart, is mount a stealth effort to unionize the walmart work force. again, 1.4 million people across the united states. we expected that we would have a ruling on that complaint of unfair labor practices from the national labor relations board sometime yesterday, over thanksgiving, so that it would apply to what we're seeing here. but it never came. typically, those complaints take six weeks to adjudicate. it was filed in little rock. the memphis regional field office was handling it, but so far no ruling. and to the national labor relations board apparently keeping its hands off today's activities. gregg: james rosen, if you're able to get somebody there to put a subject with a predicate, we'll come back to you. thanks very much. >> reporter: all right, thank you.

talks to us live. three weeks removed from election today and suddenly americans are being hit by an on shraugt of neon sthraut of new campaigning. a look at the white house now where press jay carney just began today's briefing. he reiterated that president obama will not sign legislation that extends lower tax rates for the wealthy in particular. that comes as top republicans in the senate draws a line in the sand saying political ideology cannot rule the negotiations. >> the only balanced approach is one that includes real and lasting reforms. so republicans have stepped out of our comfort zone, we've been clear about what we'll do and what we won't, and yet we remain at an impasse. leading us to why ask why? because a vocal minority on the hard left continues to argue from the leaders of their party from the president on down that democrats in washington should do absolutely nothing about short term, or long term spending problems. this is the thelmand louise crowd, the ones who dream about higher taxes and bigger government it will pay for, regardless of the impact on jobs
. in michigan they suffered a valid defeat. the past election day. i think you are seeing an effort to get win on their side. >> that was not cooked up by bakers union on strike against hostess. a judge approved request to liquidate assets so unemployment for 18,000 workers. >> shannon: does it mean never again twinkies or wonder bread? >> hostess received lucrative offers to purpose the brand names so twinkies and ho-ho and ding-dongs in my future. i don't know about yours. >> shannon: "hear! hear!" hope lives on. taking heat for taking turkey later in the grapevine. up next, feeling the heat in chicago. two weeks after being re-elected jesse jackson john your makes a huge decision. >> shannon: illinois congressman jesse jackson junior resigned, marking an end to a turbulent year for jackson. the trouble might not be over. mike tobin has the latest from chicago. >> i'd like to associate myself with the concerns -- >> in a letter to house speaker john boehner the former congressman jesse jackson junior prioritizes his health as the reason he is stepping down. he does acknowledge the investigat
this is what we're looking at. >> it's a close go argument for this election cycle. we go back to the clinton days. remember the chinese general, clinton was about money. they came from arkansas, they saw a way to enrich themselves. then the bush administration which tom tried to take to the supreme court. the obama administration, he ran specifically of power of hope and change. i'm going to be most transparent administration in american history. second or third act of this film is absolutely shocking because it's shown how the new media companies have tried to fight him every step of the way. >> the problem is the film points it out, it didn't begin with the obama administration and it won't end. >> sean: we're going to take a break. they'll expose the dangerous precedent of the obama administration. >> look at the obama administration they brought in a support system of unelected, unaccountable people who will make this country fundamentally different from what it should be as a republic.
